ALEXANDER JAMES MURRELL GRAY
Remembered with honour Thiepval Memorial: Pier and Face 13A and 13B.
He enlisted in Lambeth, London; was entitled to the Victory and British War medals, and was killed in action. Unfortunately, Alexander’s Service Record appears to be one that did not survive the World War Two bombing.

His parents married 10 June 1861 at Marylebone Parish Church, London. James died 1899 in the Chelsea, London, district aged 60.
